Colored Pencils In Butter Crock
Painting - Oil On Canvas
In the 1930's rural farmers frequently made butter at home in 5-gallon churns, packed the butter in 2,3 or 5 pound crock jars that were furnished by the grocery store. They traded the butter for groceries. My parents used this method. I obtained this small 2 or 3 pound crock from a grocery store that was going out of business in the 1950's in Columbia, South Dakota. It holds my pencils always ready.
